anxiety over these bruises!
Expert:  Dr. S. Attili replied 1 year ago.

Ok. Finally, how long does each bruise take to heal? You say your bleeding and clotting time are normal. What about your platelet counts?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
They go in about three days platlets 322
Expert:  Dr. S. Attili replied 1 year ago.

ok. In that case this has to be easy bruising. However if your bleeding time, clotting time and Platelet counts are normal, I would simply suggest taking Vitamin C supplements twice daily for 3 months. That should solve the issue. It is unlikely to be anything serious if we have excluded clotting/ bleeding disorders. Do not worry.

Hope this helps. Do keep me posted & get back if you have any further questions or feel that I have missed out anything. I will be here to provide ongoing advice as necessary. Best wishes.
